Gambia election dispute continues

President Yahya Jammeh, who had initially accepted his defeat has been asked by the opposition coalition to step down immediately, after he challenged his defeat in the recent election. Mr Jammah, who has ruled the country for 22 years, has questioned the validity of the count after the electoral commission changed some results, even though it insists the outcome was not affected. He has been urged by The UN Security Council members who met on Monday and urged him to meet international mediators who have been sent to the capital, Banjul.  The US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power, called the situation ‘dangerous’.
